Her Billionaire Husband

Chapter 32


“This is what you call not hating me?”. As he listened to her speak, Matthew felt as if something that had taken root in his heart was suddenly pulled out. His throat lightened, and indescribable feelings struck his heart with a pang. Veronica leaned against the headboard of the bed. Her complexion had yet to recover, and her body was still weak. She looked at Matthew, feeling completely unperturbed. “You’re the richest man in Bloomstead, and you get to enjoy life every day; 1, on the other hand, struggle to earn money just to survive. We are two people on parallel paths, so there shouldn’t be any intersection. Veronica slowly lowered her head, her fingertips scraping the quilt at a loss. “When I recover, I’ll go to Saint Hospital to settle my parents’ discharge. At that, Matthew’s eyebrows furrowed, and he remained silent. Veronica continued, “I’m like an ant, the most insignificant existence in the vast sea of people. Young Master Matthew, I hope that you can give me a way out because I have to feed not only myself, but my parents too. “That’s all? Didn’t you go to great lengths to make me fulfill your and Xavier’s wishes?”. Ever since he met Veronica, this was the only time she had such a serious and solemn conversation with him. For a moment, Matthew even believed her. “Young Master Matthew, as I said, the only connection between me and you was our unformed child. Now that the baby is gone, we have nothing to do with each other anymore. Understand?”. Veronica raised her voice when she spoke the last word, then she looked up and glared at Matthew. In the end, her pale lips twitched. “Young Master Matthew, are you trying to force me to the edge? If that’s the case, why did you save me yesterday? Heh…”. Matthew simply stared at her with cold, profound eyes, trying to penetrate through. 1/5. her eyes into her mind. However, he couldn’t see anything. Without saying anything more, he turned and left. Meanwhile, Xavier, who drank heavily the previous night, woke up and rubbed his aching head. “I drank too much again. He lay on the bed for a while, then suddenly remembered that Veronica called him several times the day before, so he returned her calls. But no one answered. Xavier took a look at the time Veronica called him and found that the latest call was at 11. 00PM. She called at such a late hour. Could it be that something happened? . He couldn’t help being a little worried, so he immediately got up, washed up, and drove straight to Brocade Gardens

He hurried up to the eighth floor. When he got to the door of Veronica’s apartment, he saw that the living room door was half opened, and the door lock was broken. Reaching out to open the door, he walked in and saw crimson blood on the ground. Xavier’s heart dropped as he called out, “Roni? Veronica? Veronica?”. He walked from the living room t o the bedroom, then to the bathro om, but there was no sign of her. He called her once more, only to hear the phone ringing in the living room. When he walked out, he saw the phone on the sofa. “What happ ened?” . Panicking, Xavier grew impatient. “He hadn’t felt thi s feeling since the death of his mother. He looked at the medicine o n the table and found that there was an invoice for the . purchase inside the ba g, with the time stated as 11. 30PM last night. There were four blister packs of pills inside the medicine box, and two had been emptied. “W-Why did she take so many pills?” . Suicide? . A thought popped into X avier’s mind, which sen t chills down his spine. He immediately rushed out of the apartment. While go ing downstairs, he called someone and asked them to i nvestigate which hospital took Veronica in yesterday. Ten minutes later, they f ound out that she was in People’s Second Hospital. Xavier sped all the way to the hospital. When he entered Veronica’s ward, he found that she was asleep on the hospital bed. After he saw that Veronica was still alive, his susp ended heart finally eased. Propping his hand on the bedside table, Xavier breathed a lo ng sigh of relief, and his terrified heart gradually calmed down. However, he was still frightened by Veronica’s actions. He didn’t disturb Veronica in her sle ep, but instead looked for her attend ing doctor to ask about her situation. Only then did he find out that Veronica was pregnant and had overdosed on motherwort the day before, cau sing her to suffer a miscarriage and heavy bleeding! . When she was sent to the hospital, she was alrea dy in a dangerous state. “Who sent her h ere?” Xavier as ked the doctor. “Who are you again? Why are y ou asking so much?” the docto r asked with some displeasure. “I’m… h er boyf riend. “Her boyfriend? Then, who was that man yesterday? ” As the doctor spoke, he retrieved the risk noti ce signed in the operating room the previous day. “Th is o ne. Alter looking at the flamboyant scrawl for a long time, the doctor didn’t recognize whose name it was, so he simply handed it to Xavier. Xavier glanced at the name sig ned on the risk notice and coul dn’t help frowning. “It’s him?”

Matthew! What on carth happened yesterday?. Xavier was cl ueless. He returned to the ward, sat in t he chair, and fell into deep cont emplation as he watched her sleep. After a certain period of time, Veronica wok e up and saw Xavier sitting helplessly by the hospital bed as soon as she opened her eyes. “What ar e you doi ng here?” . Veronica w as a little surprised. How did Xavier find this place?. “Yesterday… I’m sorry. I had to o much to drink” . Fortunately, Veronica was fi ne. Otherwise, Xavier wouldn’ t be able to forgive himself. “Were you in a bad mood yes terday after being scolded by your dad because of me?” . Naturally, as the person involv ed, Veronica was well aware of w hat happened at the Hilton Hotel . Since she met Xavier, he dr ank regularly at clubs, but he didn’t usually get drunk. Xavier shrugged and replied helplessly, “… It’s none of your business. I just suddenly felt like drinking. I should be the one asking you: Why w ere you sent to the emergency room after I left you alone for one night?” . As he spoke, he took an a pple from the fruit baske t and helped her peel it. He had purposely gone down to buy t he fruits for Veronica when he saw that she was still asleep just now. Moreover, this was the first time X avier cut fruits for others. “You a lready know, so why bother asking?’ . Veronica was clever, so she knew that since Xavier was sitting qui ctly by her bed, he must already know what happened the day before. Otherwise, he would be grabbing her and shooting questions at her. Xavier stilled, and his expressi on was indiscernible, but he sim ply said, “How did you know him?” . Veronica didn’t want to talk about anythi ng regarding Matthew. Ever since the day she saved Matthew, too many things had happened continuously, all of which had brought great impact and burden to her life. “Oh, right, I ha ve something to t rouble you with. Veronica deliberately changed the subject. “The doctor said I need to be hospitalized for a few days, so I can’t go to Saint Hospital to visit my parents these two days. Can you help me go there and tell them… that I went for field training and will be coming back in two days?” . Since she couldn’t go to Saint Hospital to see them, she w as afraid that her parents would be worried if she didn’t send Xavier over to give an excuse to her adoptive mother. Xavier paused his movements of peel ing the apple and slightly looked u p to fix Veronica with a cold gaze. After a moment o f silence, he nod ded. “All right
